be sure to watch tomorrow. an exclusive interview on why he is taking his books to broadway. doing the business of broadway. we will see tomorrow. "the willis report" is coming up next. ♪ gerri: hello, everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight on "the willis report" the government wants to see a two-year financial accounts. is there a plan violating your privacy? are you missing out on a perfect : you need to know about your frequent-flier miles. and we all know you should not text and drive. what is wrong with you via -- using global maps when you are behind the wheel. we're covering this tonight and more on "the willis report."
6:01 pm
gerri: our top story, is the government about to violate your privacy under the guise of protecting you? the consumer financial protection bureau demanding big banks for this customer data and using taxpayer money to buy and formation on how taxpayers use credit. with more on this, staff attorney. thank you for stopping by. appreciate your time. i am looking at this. the cftc says we have to have dated driven information to make the right as of rules to make sure we understand what consumers are doing. what they're doing is peering over our shoulder, looking into our bank accounts, credit card accounts, mortgages. isn't that just a brother? >> it is certainly concerning. your financial information reveals quite a bit about you. your credit card records, bank records, revealing not just your financial status but interesting things about your habits the more you go, how much travel, you see in what you do.
6:02 pm
it is concerning the government is looking into using data brokers and other sources to find out incredible amounts of affirmation of all sorts of people. gerri: here is what they want to spend. 20 million altogether. better credit record. the government has been regulating banks and consumer financial products. bank accounts, credit cards forever without this level of detail about us. when they have to have all this personal debts make these guys of decisions. >> and that has been the question. everyone seems to think that they did is the solution to everything. you have more data and could make better decisions. they need to realize there are costa data simply more information does not make for better decisions. maybe ways to use this is possibly but is not a matter of having access to everything. gerri: i could not agree more.
6:03 pm
the kinds of things that we are gaining access to, credit card information. they're going to know if you have over drafted your account. they will know if you buy an add-on products. , as a separate deal or they're picking of mortgage information. is there anyway i will be a will to fight back? >> and that's the question. laws on the books restrict the government from actually using this information to personal identify or profile individuals. as we have seen in many other contexts, the fact that there is a law on the boxes of me does not happen. they're gonna driver's license records to let voters are driving records, all sorts of other records that there in your possession of it is not properly protected, not oversight and auditing to make sure they're following the rules that they say they're falling, this could be vulnerable. as you said, it can be sensitive and dangerous. gerri: what do you think the ultimate risk is? >> the risk here is that
6:04 pm
consumers could have their permission exposed the government. it could be your spouse are your boyfriend works for the government and has access to information that he simply should not see. it could be there is more systemic problems or the information is not just used for consumer protection but handed over to law enforcement or immigration or other agencies that should not have access to the information without proper procedural safeguards. you want to make sure this is used only for the right purposes and not fair game for anything that anyone can possibly dream up. gerri: when it comes to the government, knowing things that they shouldn't and being involved in privacy issues. recently state attorney generals decided they would team up with what company but facebook to promote privacy. we will keep you safe. the experts we are bringing in is facebook. the federal trade commission not too long ago on charges that they were giving away information. was your private information. they promised not to. is the government just stupid or what?
6:05 pm
>> i'm not going to directly answer that question, but i'm certainly concerned because while they are cooperating with the government and trying to teach you bought to protect their permission, they do not have a pristine record of doing so. in fact, we sponsor the law in california called the right to know act that would allow consumers to ask companies, what information do you have and who are you sharing it with? and facebook is part of several industry groups that are opposing this legislation. the question is whether facebook is supporting individual's right to transparency and privacy or whether they're cooperating with the attorney generals and not released pending a behind the principles. gerri: sarai ago someone seems to want my personal details. my zip code, when i'm buying something, they're getting all my private details. thank you for coming on tonight. a story we will continue to review many times, i'm sure and we look forward to seeing you again. the unbelievable. what will they think up next? now we want to know what you
6:06 pm
think. do you trust a government which are private data? log on to gerriwillis.com and vote on the right-hand side of the screen. also tonight, talk about being a brazen. dozens of irs workers are charged with stealing government benefits. these are the very same workers who are supposed to protect taxpayer dollars. instead they're ripping off the system. elizabeth mcdonnell this year with more. great to have your. tell me about this story. >> coming out of tennessee, and what happened was basically irs workers essentially telling the u.s. government, we have been furloughed. we're out of a job. we need to get unemployment benefits, welfare, housing vouchers. food stamps. what happened was the state found out and essentially found them stealing 250,000 plus. now, you're right. these doesn't -- the guy supposed to be watching out for things like false tax refunds
6:07 pm
going out the door. so this is a twist on we have been asked to pay our fair share. now they have been caught taking their fair share. this has national implications because of the government furloughs. in other words, budget cuts, federal workers being laid off. the federal workers are basically allegedly getting government benefits but then getting rehired and not telling the government that they have been rehired. so 13 of these irs workers were caught essentially lying saying there were still out of a job when they weren't. gerri: what a story, but what it reminds me of, didn't you report that lots and lots of federal workers don't pay their income taxes? >> that's right. something like three and half billion in back taxes. 312,000 federal workers searching all across branches of the federal government. the department of housing and urban development, the government printing office, the most. even the treasury department, some myra's workers are not
6:08 pm
paying their federal taxes. get this. another twist. we are hearing that the treasury department has launched, the inspector general's office launched something called operation double dip to stop irs workers from double dipping, in other words, getting government benefits they're not entitled to that is what they're looking at. this could be a story we will see more headlines coming at a later on. gerri: so is it a good thing? >> if it stops the problem of workers, irs workers getting government benefits that are due. gerri: no one is better at covering the irs then you. thank you for coming up tonight. unbelievable. now we want to bring you the latest developments to a story we have been following. yesterday i told you outrage that was that for every dollar homeowners who are wrongly foreclosed on get for our recent settlement. consultants it for. apparently it gets worse. some of these homeowners after waiting for years are getting their compensation in the form of checks that bounced. as some go to deposit checks
6:09 pm
there being told funds are not available. unbelievable. how many things to go wrong? a lot apparently. and broadcasters are not giving up the fight. pbs, univision and our parent company are turning to appeal a recent decision allowing network content to be strained over antennas. panel of judges earlier ruled they do not violate broadcast copyrights. currently just in the new york city area but hopes to expand to 22 markets later this year. we have more to come. just getting started, including in answer to the question, should you discuss your payout at work? are you kidding me? and imagine seeing this the next time you dougie cash. an inside look into the future of your atm. take a look at that. it's coming up. ♪

>> to have this conversation with my manager about my pay in the future gerri: they put out averages for pay for different vocations all of the country. they tell people what the averages are. so if your goal is to get your pay to go higher and you plan to negotiate with your boss, wouldn't it be just as good, if not better to get to one of these web sites and get a number and walked in and say, look, i'm 5,000 under the average? >> no doubt. the conversation does not have to be the first. we are now in this age a transparency and have sites where you can do that. i also think that it is -- because the one size fits one. every company has different ways of paying, understanding what is going on around you that helps you be equipped for that conversation. gerri: i'm still not.
